Subject: The beginning of the end for the old school....
I'd figured pretty much everything out by the time "Might As Well" was coming along and in the spirit of the song I felt sort of prompted to descend back into the fray. I ran back into the Big Daddy at the end of the set break, and have honestly have been chasing the high of this China/Rider and the second set generally ever since.
I was 19 at the time and went back and told anyone who would listen how god almighty awesome the Grateful Dead live show was, --plus mushrooms to a lesser, more cautious degree-- and so opened the flood gates for the thronging hordes, instantly sold-out shows and armies of security that followed in my footsteps.
The Big Daddy and I were the beginning of the end for the old school Grateful Dead-- I know that now. I can remember the eyes and the faces looking back at me as I passed them by in the lobby corridor during the set break, and their expressions of what I know now to be bemused recognition of a kid was most definitely feeling the magic and no doubt, plus probably some of the more astute realizing that I harbingered the end of an era.
But I was there back when the shit was real and the living was easy one time---this time. And it was very, very good.
